SEB appoints new head of IR
Swedish financial services group Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) has appointed Christoffer Geijer as its new head of IR, starting in April.
Geijer succeeds IRO of three years Jonas Söderberg, who is moving to a new position at the firm as head of the Northern region for corporate and retail clients.
After completing a master’s degree at the Stockholm School of Economics – which included a year at St Petersburg State University Graduate School of Management – Geijer joined Barclays in London as an analyst covering the financial institutions group. Since 2014 he has been serving as SEB’s head of financial institutions within the debt capital markets division.
SEB, which is the result of the 1972 merger of two long-standing local banks – Stockholms Enskilda Bank and Skandinaviska Banken – has been listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange (now Nasdaq Stockholm) since 1987. The company was one of the few large financial services firms led by a female CEO, Annika Falkengren, who stepped down in 2017 after 11 years at the helm of the Swedish bank.
